Aston Martin has a long line up of cars yet the Q Division models always stand out from the rest.
The Vanquish S Red Arrows Edition is the newest announcement that oozes style factor at every glance.
The design of the car is largely inspired by the RAF’s popular aerobatic unit. It is largely made of the strong metal elements used to construct the base model but has been painted a bold red color to justify the exclusive edition tag. The company calls it the Eclat Red that is inspired by the motto of the Red Arrows and the same red is already being used the team in their livery.
Being an all-red design may not provide the much needed completion the car needs which is why the designers have chosen to add blue and white streaks along the bodywork. The roof features a naked carbon fiber setup which doesn’t have any specific color on it but has a white charge pattern. The concept is very similar to the roofs used in a jet canopy. The exterior is inspired by the Union flag enamel wing badges and another exclusive highlight of the car is that it is equipped with a sports exhaust system made of titanium material.
The Aston Martin Vanquish S is made to compliment the Red Arrows design. It carries an aeronautical theme not just in the exterior but in the interiors of the car as well. The cabin has been painted Eclat red and the other areas of the dashboard, seats are modified in such a way that they have the Red Arrows, RAF touch in it. The The trim inserts are of pinewood green and the seatbelts are painted green. It represents flight suits used by old pilots during their long flights.
The Red Arrow logo has been embroidered on the back of the seat and the transmission tunnel to show that it is an exclusive edition from Aston Martin. The switch gear has also been modified which is something not many automobile brands would do but the Q Division has gone the extra mile to make them look and feel like fighter jets. A driver driving the Vanquish S Red Arrow edition will feel they are sitting in a cockpit of a jet than an actual car.
Aston Martin has planned to build just ten of these cars. Only nine of them will be sold to customers while the last car will be given as a memorable gift to the RAF Benevolent Fund.
